Handbrake light on?

08-11-2006, 10:35 AM
I have an Integra '99.
This morning, my handbrake light was on although the handbrake was down. Also, It felt ok, it didn't file like the handbrake was on.

What do you think the cause is?

Welcome to the forum!
"Brake" warning light tells you about the brake SYSTEM malfunction. Check your brake fluid. I can bet it is low.
Make sure you do it right away. It is dangerous to drive like this. Next step your brake system if not replenished will suck in air and you will loose your brakes completely.

Hey, thanks for the reply.
I just checked the break fluid. It's full.

Any other suggestions?

It's probably just your E-brake switch. If there was a brake system problem, the ABS light would be on. The E-brake light it just a simple circuit with a switch located right next to the brake lever. Take out your center consol and you'll see the switch, it's probably just jammed.

was it chilly outside? if you answered yes it is the float on the cap that sticks, just take it off and wipe of any gunk and it should go away
